Hey, thanks for the feedback! So I took a good hard look at this, and I think there are some interesting ideas here, and I want to take them point by point.

Bulldog skins I'm with you. There are a lot of rounds where a bulldog would probably be as effective if not more effective than a vandal based on the positioning and play style, and I hate that teammates will often forgo valuable utility for a "better" gun. Honestly Zedd's bulldog skin is pretty dope and is what I'm going to stick with for a minute I think, but I understand it may not be everyone's cup of tea, so yeah, all for variety.

Growing up, my Mexican grandparents were always very accepting and straightforward about death, and they somehow saw a beauty behind it that I didn’t yet understand.

As you’ll read, these were themes that inspired Nunca Olvidados and through the process, helped me feel I can better understand where my grandparents were coming from. Yes, death can be scary and inevitable, but once family has passed, why not instead look back and continue to celebrate the memories? I didn’t realize just how much working on this skin would mean to me.

THE TRADITION

Nice work! The original was supposed to be the laughcry emoji, which I use a lot and also recently learned only cringe millennials like me use. But then that kind of makes it even better?
